Assumption University Celebrates Official Transition to University Status

NEC Assumption University will celebrate its new university status with the unveiling of a new Alma Mater sign.

Assumption University invited the entire community to its virtual unveiling ceremony, which included a mass and debut of the Alma Mater, following a performance from the Assumption University Chorale. The ceremony marked the formal transition from college the university.

“We are pleased the Commonwealth has affirmed our belief that Assumption is a comprehensive institution with exemplary undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs,” said College President Francesco C. Cesareo, Ph.D. “Despite the challenges facing the higher education industry, through the devoted and energetic work of many throughout the campus community, we find ourselves at the cusp of yet another significant moment in the storied history of this institution that was founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption.”
